The right-wing propaganda rag, The Washington Times is running a story claiming that Obama suffered an” embarrassing defeat” in which his budget was voted down 99 to 0. Many conservative blogs are repeating this lie. They are also claiming that there were similar embarrassing votes for Obama in the past. In reality, there was no actual Obama budget up for a vote. These “Obama budgets” are actually budget votes initiated by Republicans for budgets which are not really Obama’s. As they are not Obama’s actual budgets, the Democrats (along with Republicans) have unanimously voted against them.
If only the Republicans would concentrate on governing and solving problems as opposed to repeated stunts for political gain.
